Global Seminar Programs

UBC students can also learn abroad through Global Seminar Programs. Global Seminars allow students to take academic courses in a field-based setting where the academic material is linked and enhanced by the international location. A Global Seminar Program is often discipline or thematically based and opportunities may change from year to year. The programs are often led by UBC faculty members and usually take place in Summer Term.

Costs for Global Seminar Programs vary depending on the program and often include accommodation, some meals, local transportation, field trips, and cultural learning opportunities in the program fee. In most programs, UBC professors accompany students to teach UBC courses. Occasionally, programs may be in partnership with another university and courses may be taught by professors from that institution. In past, programs have been offered in Latin America, Quebec, Italy, Africa, and Asia. Examples include the Arts Term Abroad in Global Citizenship in Guatemala, Literature and the City: Reading Montreal, and Canadian Field Studies in Africa.
